Samuel Ortom, Governor of Benue State, said the anti-open grazing bill will soon be signed into law to curb clashes between herdsmen and farmers.
The governor stated this in Abuja after briefing Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, on the security situation in the state.
Ortom said the state looks forward to receiving the same cooperation from farmers and herdsmen so that all can live together as brothers and sisters, adding “we can do it; it is achievable. Living without strife, fighting and killings.
“Human life is very precious to some of us and we will do everything to protect lives and properties in the state.
” The governor noted that the state was on top of the security situation in terms of the relationship between herdsmen and farmers.”
